Sony Xperia Tablet Z Releases For Global Availability

Company claims Xperia Tablet Z has received their highest number of pre-orders till date.


Sony's flagship Android tablet, that was announced earlier this year, has now been released and is available for purchase worldwide although not in India yet. The Xperia Tablet Z comes in two variants viz. 16GB which has a price tag of $499 (roughly Rs 25,000), and the 32GB variant which is priced at $599 (roughly Rs 30,000). Sony claims that its Xperia Tablet Z has received their highest number of pre-orders till date. Do note though, that Sony's previous tablets and the Xperia Tablet S suffer from poor battery life.

In terms of tech-specs, Sony's latest Xperia Tablet Z is packed with:

  • 10.1" touch screen, having 1200x1920 pixels
  • Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system
  • 1.5 GHz Qualcomm quad-core processor
  • Adreno 320 GPU
  • 2 GB RAM
  • Internal flash memory of 16GB/32GB
  • MicroSD card slot for expansion up to 32GB
  • 8.1 MP rear camera, and a 2.2. MP front snapper
  • Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, and 3G connectivity
  • 6000mAh battery with claimed backup time of 9 hrs

The main USP of the Xperia Tablet Z is its lightweight nature - the device weighs in at 495 grams, which makes it fairly light to carry around. Even the tech-specs of Tablet Z look impressive. Sony says that the device can sync with the company's recently released Xperia Z smartphone. But with their high-price tags, Sony cannot expect to win the war easily in India; considering tablets from brands such as Samsung (notably the Galaxy Tab series), and the Apple iPad series get the fancy of tablet computer buyers in the Indian subcontinent.
